This is one of the recommended islands to visit in Peninsular Malaysia as the infrastructure is modern yet laid back. Located just above Penang and part of the Kedah state, Langkawi offers beautiful beaches, plenty of resorts ranging from low to high end and even luxury resorts like The Datai and The Four Seasons for all types of travelers. Apart for it being an island, there is also eco tourism adventures at the Langkawi Geo Park. Take a ride up the tallest mountain here via a cable car or self-drive yourself around the island. Langkawi is also accessible via flights as there is an international airport there while for those coming from Penang or the mainland, there are ferry services to the island. The most popular spot in Langkawi is at Pantai Cenang or Cenang Beach which is the main area. Kuah town is the capitol but this serves as a general town area. There are no beaches around the main town area too.
